My First Tutorial-Masked, Sponged and Stamped

Hi there..........I had many questions about creating THIS CARD and my local scrapbooking store asked me to do a tutorial so here it first one.  It is super easy to do and since so many of us are visual learners, I hope these photos make the process more clear.

Step One
 I taped my paper down with temporary adhesive to my work surface. Then I added my mask on top of my paper (made by Mr. Huey) and taped that down to hold everything in place.

Step 2
These are the colours of Distress inks that I used and the application tool.
Broken China, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers

Step 3
I rubbed the inks onto my paper randomly with my inking tool until the whole piece of cardstock was inked.

Step 4
Next, leaving the mask in place after my cardstock was all inked, I stamped over it with the snowflake stamp using the same Distress ink colours.

Step 5
This is what the coloured and stamped sheet looks like when the mask is removed.

Step 6
I inked the edges using the same colours again to pull it all together.

Step 7
I stamped the sentiment and embossed it, then cut the piece for the front of the card.  I cut a snowflake using my Spellbinder die in my Cuttlebug and while still in the die, sponged on some more ink so when removed it would define the snowflake.  I attached it with pop dots and added a jewel in the center.

Here is a shot of the set from Penny Black that I used called
Let it Snow

Well that's it.  I have to say it was fun putting together this first tutorial.  Enjoy!!
